georges st-pierre

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre stood on the top pedestal of the sport for years.

However, in 2013, St-Pierre stepped away from mixed martial arts, vacating the title and leaving a legacy behind as one of the all-time greats.

During a recent interview with Montreal’s Reseau de sports, GSP decided to get fans all excited with comments about a possible return – though he did rule out getting back into training this year.

“I’m starting to get the feeling, more and more, to come back,” St-Pierre said (thanks to MMAFighting.com for the translation). “I watch the fights to see what’s going on in my division, and I’m staying in shape. It’s like a knife that I have to keep sharp just in case I ever decide to jump back in the mix. It’s not for sure that it won’t happen in 2015, but I’m not sure yet.”

Back in 2013, St-Pierre bested Johny Hendricks in another successful title defense. All total, the 34-year-old has 19 wins inside the Octagon and has defeated the likes of Hendricks, Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit, Jake Shields and Josh Koscheck in recent years.

Travis Browne and Ronda Rousey are a pair.

Just don’t refer to them as boyfriend and girlfriend.

Appearing on a recent edition of “The MMA Hour,” Browne confirmed that he and the UFC female bantamweight champion are together after a summer of talking.

“She’s my woman, and I’m her man,” Brown said. “There’s no boyfriend-girlfriend stuff. There’s no dating; we’re together.”

Browne (17-3-1) broke up with fitness model Jenna Renee Webb after allegations of assault. An independent study by the UFC was conducted and “Hapa” was reinstated after being suspended.

As all that was going on, Browne and Rousey struck up a relationship as he dealt with all the “(expletive) that I had to shuffle through.”

“Over the summer, Ronda and I started talking,” he said. “I’ll say now that we are together.”

Up next for Browne will be Matt Mitrione in January, while Rousey (12-0) defends her title next month vs. Holly Holm in Australia at UFC 193.

ronda rousey

Ronda Rousey recently stated in an interview that she is tired of people discussing her weight and body.

Cris “Cyborg” Justino finds that amusing to say the least.

Cyborg, the current Invicta FC featherweight champion, took to social media to explain how she’s been dealing with that exact same kind of bullying for five years from Rousey and UFC president Dana White.

I find it Hypocritical of (Ronda Rousey) to complain about people in Hollywood being critical of her body image, talking about her arms or the extra weight she carries between fights.

For the past 5 years this same Ronda Rousey and Dana White have used the media to Bully me, opening the door for other opponents to try the same tactics.

Instead of talking about my fighting skills, they would rather use the Media attention to say like I look like a man, or that I Walk like Wanderlia Silva in a dress.

These comments are not made to promote a fight between the 2 best female fighters on the planet!!
they are said to make me feel bad, and are a weak attempt to bully someone into having lower self esteem.

Whether Ronda accepts the responsibility or not, she is a role model for millions of girls around the world and they listen to what she says, often times imitating her actions.

I am glad to see she is more sensitive to the issue of Bullying now that she is experiencing it for herself in Hollywood and hopefully with this comes more maturity and growth as a woman.

I see the results of bullying online everyday, and it is a real problem, because of this I have decided to use my next fight in ‪InvictaFC‬ to bring awarness to online Bullying, more news about my next opponent and fight date to come soon!

It is important that people understand their true value is not in the way that they look, how many instagram followers they have, or the amount of money that they have in their bank account.
Our true self worth and lasting legacy comes from the way we treat one another, how well we help our communities, and our ability to serve god.

Online bullying will never go away, but through education I hope we can lead people to see the consequences of their actions, and I am glad to see Ronda Rousey is starting to see this for herself.

I find it Hypocritical of @rondarousey to complain about people in Hollywood being critical of her body image, talking…

sage northcutt

It’s pretty hard to believe that 19-year-old prospect Sage Northcutt does not train full-time.

Northcutt, who attends college, did take time off from school to prepare for his UFC debut. But, he’s thinking about doing even more – training, not school – moving forward.

“Last semester, I was taking classes full time and I didn’t have enough time to train MMA. This semester, I took off some of my classes and this was the first fight I truly got to train for,” he said, during a recent interview on UFC Tonight. “I might take a little time off from school to train. I’d be a totally different animal if I trained full time.”

The youngest fighter on the UFC roster, Northcutt has the same goal as everybody else: gold.

“When I was nine years old, I was on the cover of Sport Karate magazine,” he said. “Then I said that I’d fight in the UFC. Now I’ve done that and I believe I can win the title belt. That’s my new goal.”
